CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) The mother of a woman killed when a man rammed his car through a crowd protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is suing the convicted murderer for wrongful death.
Susan Bro filed a $12 million lawsuit Aug. 30 against 22-year-old James Alex Fields Jr., who is now serving life sentences plus 419 years on numerous convictions.
The Daily Progress reports Thursday that Bro said she doesnt want Fields blood money. She just wants to make sure he cant profit from selling the rights to his story or publishing a memoir.

Groan. Her daughter died of a heart attack, not injuries sustained from a hit from his vehicle.
Not being a Democrat. He could have gotten off with a couple years of probation.
When Fields was reached for comment, he said:
Don’t Sue Me, Bro!
What? There was blood on the perp’s car from the impact, how could it have been a heart attack? It was trauma that did her in.
I don’t have any opinion on the case, he screwed up and was likely freaked out when he did it, but I’ve also seen the video.
Also, he is a white male, so I'm sure that tacked on about 300 years to his sentence.
Message received. Plan accordingly.
Regardless of how vile she is politically, her daughter died, have some heart.
“she doesnt want Fields blood money. She just wants to make sure he cant profit from selling the rights to his story or publishing a memoir”
Called the “Son of Sam” law, most states have this prohibition already on the books, and I suspect this state does too. Yes, it is about the bucks she will make WHEN she has a book ghost-written for her.
I agree, very unlikely. It seems to me like it’s posturing for the sake of it knowing the public opinion will continue to be on her side.
No sympathy for communists and fellow travelers.
Any links to where I can research this further? Like I said, a bit of research shows that the coroner determined she died of blunt force trauma, and the wiki page says a major artery severing, which fits the situation. There’s also the blood traces from the car hit. I don’t like conspiracy theories.
It’s a Slam Dunk case for Bro.
James Fields cannot afford a lawyer.
OK, I guess. Humanity has greater bounds than simply politics. Remember how FR reacted when Ed Kennedy died? It was almost as nasty as the libs reacted when Clarence Thomas and David Koch died. I guess my perspective is a little different, but I get where you’re coming from.
Was not her blood.
According to her autopsy she was 4’11”, 335 lbs.
Her daughter died instigating hate and violence against the USA. Screw her.
Clarence Thomas died? What did I miss?
It was not her blood on Field's car. She was struck by a secondary impact from the vehicle that Field hit.
The coroner's report said that she died from a heart attack, brought on by stress from the event. The secondary impact injuries were minor by themselves.
Field was correctly held responsible for the death. The sentencing was extravagantly disproportional, reflecting the Leftist political agenda.
